If you have to cut a manifold to make repairs, you are working on an idiot's creation. Glued manifolds are made by sissy pikers with no future thought about repairs. Glue? What.... are you working in a nail salon? Threaded connections are how men make MANifolds. It's called a MANifold, not a girlyfold.
And who pays for you deciding to do extra work by splitting up manifolds into separate valve boxes?
